I purchased your book “Buffed” and have been following the 12 week program to the letter.
Body weight 148lbs.
10% bodyfat (naturally lean)
Years of training: on and off since high school, very dedicated for past 2 years.
Program: Ian King - 4 day Weights: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday Cardio on Wednesday
Calories per day: 2000 , 5 meals per day. High protein, low carb, low fat diet
Supplements: Just Protein and Myoplex bars for 3 of the 5 meals
Problem - I have gotten stronger and toner from the program. But cannot gain size and weight. I have been stuck at 148lbs. for the past year. I would like to build to 175lbs. with a more bodybuilder appearance. I am gaining strength, but not size.
1 RM measures: Bench 235lbs. , pull ups - my weight plus 25 lbs. plate, squat - 250lbs., deadlift - 145 lbs.
Any advice? I am planning to start a new training cycle in a few weeks. Right now I am planning to repeat the program in “Buffed” with a greater emphasis on training intensity. Also, I have trained natural. Is the Finaplix route a good idea?
